In a new report Asset & Wealth Management Revolution: Embracing Exponential Change, PwC anticipates that global Assets under Management (AuM) will almost double in size by 2025.

By 2025, AuM will have almost doubled – rising by 6.2% a year, from $84.9 trillion in 2016 to $145.4 trillion in 2025, with the fastest growth seen in the developing markets of Latin America and Asia Pacific.
While active management will continue to grow and play an important role, reaching $87.6 trillion by 2025 (60% of global AuM), PwC predicts growth in passive management to reach $36.6 trillion by 2025 (25% of global AuM).
Alternative asset classes – in particular, real assets, private equity and private debt – will more than double in size, reaching $21.1 trillion by 2025, accounting for 15% of global AuM.
There is a "great divide" between asset and wealth managers who have acted to ensure they are fit for growth, and those who have not.
The industry’s involvement in niche areas such as trade finance, peer-to-peer lending and infrastructure will dramatically increase. ■
